It’s Only Been Since 1974

This is dedicated to all the dope heads and pot conventioneers out there (my German mother used to accuse me of going to pot conventions, whatever that meant). In 1979 I was aware of cannabis’ medical benefits because I knew they helped my migraines that were debilitating. I didn’t have regular access but there were a couple of times that it was the only thing that helped.

I was told what a waste I would be.That using cannabis would demotivate me and I would never achieve anything. Even after the way this country is being dismantled, I am far better off than most people. I have gone years without partaking of the medicine because it is illegal and I could lose my job. Its the same old story of those in the know.

To this day I know its healing properties are being held from us purposefully. And I am not just talking about keeping you from puking on chemo. I am talking about this shit can KILL CANCER.

Yes, it has been proven more than once.

As far back as 1974 we have a study by the Medical College of Virginia, funded by the National Institute of Health,  that showed THC shrinks lung and breast cancer, and a virus-induced leukemia in rats when injected. Unless you read here, you may not have even heard of this study.

Why?

Because the DEA shuttled it, hid the results, and stopped any further studies. In 1976, Gerald Ford ended research and tried to make it where only Big Pharma could synthesize the components (which thus far is basically a failure).

It then took the Spanish the balls to replicate the miracle.

The Madrid researchers reported in the March issue of “Nature Medicine” that they injected the brains of 45 rats with cancer cells, producing tumors whose presence they confirmed through magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). On the 12th day they injected 15 of the rats with THC and 15 with Win-55,212-2 a synthetic compound similar to THC. “All the rats left untreated uniformly died 12-18 days after glioma (brain cancer) cell inoculation … Cannabinoid (THC)-treated rats survived significantly longer than control rats. THC administration was ineffective in three rats, which died by days 16-18. Nine of the THC-treated rats surpassed the time of death of untreated rats, and survived up to 19-35 days. Moreover, the tumor was completely eradicated in three of the treated rats.” The rats treated with Win-55,212-2 showed similar results.

The Spanish researchers, led by Dr. Manuel Guzman of Complutense University, also irrigated healthy rats’ brains with large doses of THC for seven days, to test for harmful biochemical or neurological effects. They found none.

“Careful MRI analysis of all those tumor-free rats showed no sign of damage related to necrosis, edema, infection or trauma … We also examined other potential side effects of cannabinoid administration. In both tumor-free and tumor-bearing rats, cannabinoid administration induced no substantial change in behavioral parameters such as motor coordination or physical activity. Food and water intake as well as body weight gain were unaffected during and after cannabinoid delivery. Likewise, the general hematological profiles of cannabinoid-treated rats were normal. Thus, neither biochemical parameters nor markers of tissue damage changed substantially during the 7-day delivery period or for at least 2 months after cannabinoid treatment ended.”

There are those idiots or hacks that come here to dissuade such information with straw men arguments but they never have the ability to negate the truth. Many people are afraid to even discuss the subject but it is getting better.

The mind screw that anyone and everyone that partakes of cannabis is a worthless pot head, without understanding the medical benefits (and miracles) this stuff presents is only harming themselves and others.

That is foolish or intentionally trying to harm others. Either way you are supporting profits of Big Business while killing your fellow citizens.

“Marijuana is safe, we know it is safe. It’s our cash cow and we will never give up,” Nelson said to the audience of doctors and nurses.

The Racket Broken and Made Simple

…the use of marijuana for any reason should be perfectly legal. There should be no laws at any level of government regarding the buying, selling, growing, processing, transporting, manufacturing, advertising, using, possessing, or “trafficking” of marijuana for any reason. There should be no laws at any level of government to prohibit, regulate, restrict, or otherwise control what a man desires to smoke, drink, inject, snort, sniff, inhale, swallow, or otherwise ingest into his mouth, nose, veins, or lungs. There should be no federal or state DEAs, no Office of National Drug Control Policy, no drug schedules, and no Controlled Substances Act. There should be marijuana freedom…

Zen, The Pain, and Never Apologize

Yep. I have had limited postings lately. The job has been a killer of late… long hours and mega stress. Seems like I don’t have the time to read and search for the ever elusive solution to the woes I have identified.

So, today, I simply want to highlight a few posts that have stoked my interest.

First is Zen Gardner. I have read his site for many years. I generally throw out about half that he posts as too esoteric for my tastes or too David Ickeeee to be totally true. I have considered him a decent fellow, but now he tells us about his past:

Following my original wake up and getting deep into spirituality and looking for how best I could change the world, at 22 years old I joined the Children of God, later to be known as The Family. Many of my generation tried various alternative lifestyles, new religious movements and the like, most of which turned out to be cults in one form or another, as was my case. I didn’t fully escape until 1999 after many years of trying to change the group from the inside because I felt I had to give it my best shot before leaving, having invested so much of my heart and life in it and what I thought it stood for during those many years and wanting to leave with a clear conscience.

Sadly the cult descended into heavier and heavier control systems and strange doctrines and serious endemic abuse that appeared as the years progressed into the later stages. If you’ve never been in such an insular setting with heavy duty militant religious indoctrination 24/7 this may not make any sense to you.

People I talk to personally about this era of my life always ask, “Why didn’t you just leave?” A good question, but unfortunately it’s a form of mind and spirit control that convolutes your reasoning and even basic sense of ethics as the programming progresses and wraps around your mind and soul, always justified by “God’s will” and “we are the endtime spiritual revolutionaries going where others have never dared to go” in order to pioneer a new world supposedly based on the literal teachings of Jesus, updated of course by a modern prophet.

It took him 27 years to figure out it was a cult that raped children. And he was leadership within the cult. Not only leadership, but he was in charge of their “image management“.

An image manager’s job in a pedophile cult would likely involve painting a rosy picture of the cult as wholesome to the outside world.

However Zen Gardner, in a blog post titled My Missing Years, is now attempting to play the victim and blame the cult leadership – of which he was a part – for the cult’s depravities. He is attempting to downplay his personal involvement by blaming the same cult whose image it was once his job to massage.

It is unlikely that somebody who spent 27 years of their adult life in a pedophile cult, rising through the ranks to become a leader and media chief, would not have some idea of what was going on behind the scenes. That is not how cults work.

I don’t know Zen. I understand that he does not live in the USA (having moved his family to S America, I believe). Now I wonder what the motive for that exodus was.

Moving on, how many of you older folks feel the pain from arthritis or other neuropathic causes? You ruin your stomach with the over the counter stuff and your life with the prescription meds that give you heart attacks and the like. But did you know that THC can alleviate that pain, in very small doses?

Abstract:

We conducted a double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover study evaluating the analgesic efficacy of vaporized cannabis in subjects, the majority of whom were experiencing neuropathic pain despite traditional treatment. Thirty-nine patients with central and peripheral neuropathic pain underwent a standardized procedure for inhaling medium-dose (3.53%), low-dose (1.29%), or placebo cannabis with the primary outcome being visual analog scale pain intensity. Psychoactive side effects and neuropsychological performance were also evaluated. Mixed-effects regression models demonstrated an analgesic response to vaporized cannabis. There was no significant difference between the 2 active dose groups’ results (P>.7). The number needed to treat (NNT) to achieve 30% pain reduction was 3.2 for placebo versus low-dose, 2.9 for placebo versus medium-dose, and 25 for medium- versus low-dose. As these NNTs are comparable to those of traditional neuropathic pain medications, cannabis has analgesic efficacy with the low dose being as effective a pain reliever as the medium dose. Psychoactive effects were minimal and well tolerated, and neuropsychological effects were of limited duration and readily reversible within 1 to 2 hours. Vaporized cannabis, even at low doses, may present an effective option for patients with treatment-resistant neuropathic pain. PERSPECTIVE: The analgesia obtained from a low dose of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (1.29%) in patients, most of whom were experiencing neuropathic pain despite conventional treatments, is a clinically significant outcome. In general, the effect sizes on cognitive testing were consistent with this minimal dose. As a result, one might not anticipate a significant impact on daily functioning.

Big Meds and the Alcohol Industry (among others with a profit motive to keep cannabis illegal) don’t want you to know this. They want to synthesize the chemical constituents and give that to you. But it won’t work like the real deal works.

However, the alcohol industry does not make money by attempting to decrease drunk driving. As long as they can use the government to keep their competition illegal, however, they will. And, this email is evidence that they are trying to do just that.

Nothing highlights the hypocrisy, immorality, and sheer idiocy of the drug war quite like marijuana prohibition. Here we have a medicine that kills cancer cells, saves the lives of countless epileptic children, heals broken bones, relieves pain, treats PTSD, is not dangerous, and exhibits a variety of other incredible benefits – yet the state will kill you over it.

So why do these tyrants keep it illegal?

If you want to know who profits from ruining lives and throwing marijuana users in cages, we need only look at who bribes (also known as lobbies) the politicians to keep the war on drugs alive. Aside from the alcohol industry throwing money at tyrannical legislation, they are joined by law enforcement and big pharma.

Below is a list of the top five industries who need you locked in a cage for possessing a plant in order to ensure their job security.

  1. Police Unions: Coming in as the number one contributor to politicians for their votes to lock you in a cage for a plant are the police themselves. They risk taking massive pay cuts and losing all their expensive militarized toys without the war on drugs.
  2. Private Prison Corporations: No surprise here. The corporatist prison lobby is constantly pushing for stricter laws to keep their stream of tax dollars flowing.
  3. Alcohol and Beer Companies: These giant corporations hate competition, so why not pay millions to keep a cheaper and far safer alcohol alternative off the market? Case in point, the WSWA.
  4. Pharmaceutical Corporations: The hypocrisy of marijuana remaining a Schedule 1 drug, “No Medical Use Whatsoever,” seems criminal when considering that pharmaceutical companies reproduce a chemical version of THC and can market and sell it as such. Ever hear of Marinol? Big pharma simply uses the force of the state to legislate out their competition; that happens to be nature.
  5. Prison Guard Unions: The prison guard unions are another group, so scared of losing their jobs, that they would rather see thousands of non-violent and morally innocent people thrown into cages than look for another job.

How many of you still believe the reefer madness? How many would rather stop suffering? How many of you still believe these corrupt thieves and murderers that your best interest is their goal?

Suckers.

Never Apologize to the Liar Cult

If you are non-jew apologising to a jew then prepare yourself, because you will be the subject of outrageous and shrill demands from them for your various alleged ‘sins’.

You will always be held responsible for things you yourself have never done.

So don’t apologise to jews… ever.

Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency (CECD)

I told you that the stuff was made for your body.

MM_CU02

As hard as that is to believe (due to all the decades of brainwashing we’ve been subjected to), there are benefits to the miracle plant which include filling the deficiencies that lead to “migraine, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome and other treatment-resistant conditions“:

Abstract

OBJECTIVES:

Ethan B. Russo’s paper of December 1, 2003 explored the concept of a clinical endocannabinoid deficiency (CECD) underlying the pathophysiology of migraine, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome and other functional conditions alleviated by clinical cannabis.

METHODS:

Available literature was reviewed, including searches via the National Library of medicine database and other sources.

RESULTS:

A review of the literature indicates that significant progress has been made since Dr. Ethan B. Russo’s landmark paper, just ten years ago (February 2, 2004). Investigation at that time suggested that cannabinoids can block spinal, peripheral and gastrointestional mechanisms that promote pain in headache, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome and muscle spasm.

CONCLUSION:

Subsequent research has confirmed that underlying endocannabinoid deficiencies indeed play a role in migraine, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome and a growing list of other medical conditions. Clinical experience is bearing this out. Further research and especially, clinical trials will further demonstrate the usefulness of medical cannabis. As legal barriers fall and scientific bias fades this will become more apparent.

The list of ailments this miracle medicine can help (and cure) is extensive. As a matter of fact, there may be NO ailment that it cannot help in some way. Why do you think Big Meds wants it kept illegal (obviously profit motives)? Or why would they try to synthesize the constituents for profit (which has caused horrible outcomes that the real thing never has caused in history)?

endocabbinoid-ssystem

tobacco_kills_cannabis_heals_postcardsMany people I know are still so hoodwinked about it. Maybe you believe the lies (like how it might make you stupid, even as a heavy user, when I contend it does the opposite). Maybe you had a bad experience and didn’t like getting “high”. But what I am talking about isn’t the wonderful high (in my opinion), but the medical efficacy that one gets from it via ingestion. If you are hung up on smoke harming your lungs, then vaporize it and there is absolutely ZERO affect on your lungs. But one can take a rice sized drop of the oil on their tongue or added to a drink. Or, if it were truly legalized (as it should be), then one could add it to a salad for raw consumption (and no way to get high). Even the old standard lie about the joint being SEVEN TIMES MORE CARCINOGENIC AS CIGARETTES has been proved false (as I have claimed many times in my life). As a matter of fact, it PROTECTS against cancer (and is far less harmful, if at all, than cigarettes).

Even some of my closest links to the side over there are against weed and its legalization (and these are supposedly people with a liberty bend to their writing/work). I cannot grasp such a contradictory stance. Hence, my guess it is either ignorance or misunderstanding or a personal bad experience.

People do not have to be unproductive dope heads to heal themselves.

But why do I feel I need to write such an obvious sentence?

The Real Efficacy Is The Whole Plant

Big Meds want to make their Big Money from breaking down the plant into different individualized components. But the fact is that virtually anyone and everyone who has used this plant will tell you the plant works better than the “medicine” produced. Here is Dennis Hill’s graphic and explanation:

doi:10.1016/j.tips.2009.07.006

Which is better for healing, whole plant medicine or a single element pharmaceutical? Why is it that patients given the choice prefer the whole plant? There are many reasons for this, but they generally boil down to one thing, all the various cannabinoids, enzymes, terpenes, phenols, flavonoids, vitamins, and other elements in cannabis work together synergistically to provide a robust healing effect. One researcher calls this the Entourage Effect. Here, entourage refers to the aggregate of all the synergistic elements in the cannabis plant. Below is a chart showing six different cannabinoids and their effects on the human body. So we see how many different benefits arise from this entourage of cannabinoids. The variety of cannabis terpenes, flavonoids, and enzymes are also beneficial.
There is no doubt that pharmaceutical houses will want in on the cannabis bonanza. If they follow their tradition we will see single element drugs giving us synthetic THC or CBD, but my hope is they will see the wisdom in whole plant medicine.

~Dennis Hill

Why Weed? ‘Cause God Made You That Way

Whether you believe in Intelligent Design or Evolutionary design (whether God put them there or we evolved them), the fact is that your body has more cannabinoid receptors than any other receptor known to man. What possible purpose could this have? What are the chances that we have these receptors, but aren’t supposed to use them?

Atheists may have a hard time with this, because they don’t believe there is an intelligent design. Religionists may have a problem with it because they find it impossible to reconcile the propaganda of decades that told them how evil cannabis is, yet they have a body designed to receive this medicine.

No, the fact is that our bodies were designed to be this way.

If there is not a medical reason for our body to receive these cannabinoids, why are they there?

BBC special on Cannabinoid Receptors…below an article by Steve Kubby, Sierra Times …A new study published in Nature Reviews-Cancer provides an historic and detailed explanation about how THC and natural cannabinoids counteract cancer, but preserve normal cells. It is hard to believe that the knowledge that cannabis can be used to fight cancer has been suppressed for almost thirty years , yet it seems likely that it will continue to be suppressed. Why? According to Cowan, the answer is because it is a threat to cannabis prohibition . “If this article and its predecessors from 2000 and 1974 were the only evidence of the suppression of medical cannabis, then one might perhaps be able to rationalize it in some herniated way. However, there really is massive proof that the suppression of medical cannabis represents the greatest failure of the institutions of a free society, medicine, journalism, science, and our fundamental values,” Cowan notes. Millions of people have died horrible deaths and in many cases, families exhausted their savings on dangerous, toxic and expensive drugs. Now we are just beginning to realize that while marijuana has never killed anyone, marijuana prohibition has killed millions.

And now the government agencies are forced to admit its efficacy regarding cancer (this is major)

US National Cancer Institute Now Lists Cannabis as Potential Cancer Treatment

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) is the United State’s primary agency in which cancer research and training is conducted. They are part of a larger umbrella of governmental agencies that comprise the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The NCI is largely responsible for the running the National Cancer Program, providing cancer-related information to the public, as well as developing programs and recommendations for the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of cancer.

Now listed on the the NCI’s Cannabis and Cannabinoids page, which is assumed to be the United State’s official position regarding Marijuana’s potential application in treating cancer, are the following facts:

  • Studies in mice and rats have shown that cannabinoids may inhibit tumor growth by causing cell death, blocking cell growth, and blocking the development of blood vessels needed by tumors to grow. Laboratory and animal studies have shown that cannabinoids may be able to kill cancer cells while protecting normal cells.
  • A study in mice showed that cannabinoids may protect against inflammation of the colon and may have potential in reducing the risk of colon cancer, and possibly in its treatment.
  • A laboratory study of delta-9-THC in hepatocellular carcinoma (liver cancer) cells showed that it damaged or killed the cancer cells. The same study of delta-9-THC in mouse models of liver cancer showed that it had antitumor effects. Delta-9-THC has been shown to cause these effects by acting on molecules that may also be found in non-small cell lung cancer cells and breast cancer cells.
  • A laboratory study of cannabidiol (CBD) in estrogen receptor positive and estrogen receptor negative breast cancer cells showed that it caused cancer cell death while having little effect on normal breast cells. Studies in mouse models of metastatic breast cancer showed that cannabinoids may lessen the growth, number, and spread of tumors.
  • A laboratory study of cannabidiol (CBD) in human glioma cells showed that when given along with chemotherapy, CBD may make chemotherapy more effective and increase cancer cell death without harming normal cells. Studies in mouse models of cancer showed that CBD together with delta-9-THC may make chemotherapy such as temozolomide more effective.

The page also discusses several other potential medical applications for Cannabis and Cannabinoids such as pain relief, appetite stimulation, as well as it being an effective treatment for nausea, anxiety, and depression.

The page concludes by stating the FDA has not approved Cannabis or any Cannabinoids for the treatment of cancer, but that two Cannabinoids (dronabinal and nabilone) are currently approved for the treatment of chemotherapy-related nausea and vomiting.

The NCI’s page on Cannabinoids and Cannabis as a treatment for cancer gives the impression that the currently schedule I substance, Marijuana, holds tremendous potential for medical applications.

“Cannabinoids may be able to kill cancer cells while protecting normal cells”

 

The time draws near that America will embrace this miracle cure. We should be pissed that they have intentionally hid it from us, and worse, made anyone who did know this out to be criminals… ruining lives and perpetuating pain and suffering to make Big Meds and other Big Money entities even richer.

Cancer Myths And How The Miracle Medicine Works

The cancer industry is just that… Industry (as in a commercial enterprise)

Cancer is often considered a by product of our environment and food intake (among other potential causation). It is evident that something has caused a humungous rise in cancers and deaths over the past one hundred years (or more) and the notion that genetics, alone, as the main cause cannot be true. It is a man-made phenomena:

‘In industrialised societies, cancer is second only to cardiovascular disease as a cause of death. But in ancient times, it was extremely rare.

‘There is nothing in the natural environment that can cause cancer. So it has to be a man-made disease, down to pollution and changes to our diet and lifestyle.

‘The important thing about our study is that it gives a historical perspective to this disease. We can make very clear statements on the cancer rates in societies because we have a full overview. We have looked at millennia, not one hundred years, and have masses of data.

‘Yet again extensive ancient Egyptian data, along with other data from across the millennia, has given modern society a clear message – cancer is man-made and something that we can and should address.’

Follow The Money

I also subscribe to the idea that one should follow the money, and the fact is that the cancer industry is Big Money. This same Doctor explained in a Wall Street Journal article:

“These drugs cost too much,” Leonard Saltz, chief of gastrointestinal oncology at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, said in a speech heard by thousands of doctors here for the annual meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology.

Dr. Saltz’s remarks focused mainly on an experimental melanoma treatment made by Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. , but he also criticized pricing more widely. He cited statistics showing that the median monthly price for new cancer drugs in the U.S. had more than doubled in inflation-adjusted dollars from $4,716 in the period from 2000 through 2004 to roughly $9,900 from 2010 through 2014. Dr. Saltz cited studies showing that the price increases haven’t corresponded to increases in the drugs’ effectiveness.

“Cancer-drug prices are not related to the value of the drug,” Dr. Saltz said. “Prices are based on what has come before and what the seller believes the market will bear.”

The thing about Big Money is that they will lie with abandon just to continue making the buck (irregardless of the harm done).

The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness…

Every now and again, guilt of complicity takes a hold of a few and the decent ones will explain the corruption (much to the chagrin of others caught up in the lies).

It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines.

Cancer Industry Myths Versus Facts

There are 5 basic facts that the cancer industry promotes as myths (see at Prevent Disease):

    1. The rise in all types of cancer is due to modern diet, lifestyle, and environment. Records of lifespan prior to the 18th century are scarce, but in all records of studied prehistoric skeletons, only 200 cases of possible cancer have been found. However, from 1900-2011, cancer deaths have increased 3 foldOne researcher found that in 80% of processed food, 4 main ingredients are found which harm immunity: corn, wheat, soy, and meat.
    2. Superfoods and herbs can prevent cancer. This is true in many cases. In fact, there are 17 herbs and spices which in their own right are considered super-foods, and have been scientifically proven to prevent and treat cancer.
    3. Acidic diets cause cancer. Blood pH should be within a range of 7.3 to 7.41. If the pH is lower than that range, acidosis occurs, which leads to central nervous system depression. Severe acidosis (below 7.0) can cause coma and death. If the pH rises above 7.45, the result is alkalosis. Keeping the body closer to an alkaline state (up to .05) can make a significant difference in cancer growth or suppression. Cancer cells can’t live in an alkaline environment.
    4. Sugar feeds cancer. A four-year study at the National Institute of Public Health and Environmental Protection in the Netherlands compared 111 biliary tract cancer patients with 480 controls. Cancer risk associated with the intake of sugars, independent of other energy sources, more than doubled for the cancer patients. Another epidemiological study covering 21 modern countries (Europe, North America, Japan and others) found that sugar intake is a strong risk factor for higher breast cancer rates, especially in older women.
    5. Conventional cancer treatment kills more than it cures. Five year relative survival rates for cancer are standard because after 5 years, many patients’ conditions worsen. More accurate long-term statistics would reflect ten years or more, as well as data on cost-effectiveness, immune system impact, quality of life, morbidity, and mortality. When these factors are considered, chemotherapy makes little to no contribution to cancer survival.

How The Miracle Medicine Actually Works

As long as we continue to believe these myths hiding as the “industry’s” facts, we will continue to get sick and die at alarming rates. But I would not be complete without addressing other “myths”, especially regarding the usage of cannabis. I address these myths and lies about medical cannabis often (and that barely covers all the posts on the subject here).

Even though we are seeing that some of the Industry is being forced to admit that there are medical benefits to cannabis, they are still trying to make money from it. Tactics include deriving certain compounds from the plant and synthesizing it into product. They minimize certain other compounds that also have wonderful benefits, even to the point of perpetuating the idea of illegality, except for their “product”. THC is a prime example of this bait and switch.

All of us have heard about the usage and promotion of CBD’s. The media and government pushes it to no end and many states are enacting laws to make this substance available, especially “for the children”. Yes, high CBD oils DO, in fact, stop deadly cancers, as seen in this presentation (but that does not mean that the THC contained in that oil was not helpful).

I am not poo-pooing CBD’s, especially in natural forms. But the fact is that THC, the demonized constituent (because it gets you high), is also as much, if not more so, medically effectual.

Case in point is how THC attacks breast cancer cells and KILLS them.

THC has the miraculous capacity to help those who suffer from cancer. The wonder compound increases appetite, reduces nausea and can even help to quell pains that patients suffer from cancer and its unpleasant list of symptoms. However, despite the numerous findings and studies that have been published about this, cannabis is still vilified by the government and kept federally illegal.

A clip from documentary called “Clearing the Smoke” depicts a microscopic view of cancer cells that have had THC administered to them, which causes the malignant cells to weaken and eventually die completely.

In the beginning of the video, the malignant cancer cells are seen quickly moving under the lens of the microscope. But as the THC molecules begin to affect them, they turn blue and begin to slow down. Eventually they cease moving completely and some can even be seen dying from the effects of the THC near the end of the clip.

The video itself is fantastic visual evidence that THC, even administered in low doses (as was depicted), can be a highly-effective tool in the ongoing fight against cancer.

News as exciting as this is not something new to the federal government; in fact, a study that was published in the August 18, 1974 issue of the Washington Post reported finding that THC “slowed the growth of lung cancer, breast cancers, and virus-induced leukemia in laboratory mice, and prolonged their lives as much as 36 percent.”

The results themselves read: “Animals treated for 10 consecutive days with delta-9-THC, beginning the day after tumor implantation, demonstrated a dose-dependent action of retarded tumor growth. Mice treated for 20 consecutive days with delta-8-THC and CBN had reduced primary tumor size.”

The study was conducted by a team of researchers at the Medical College of Virginia acting on the behalf of the federal government. Unfortunately, the government was unhappy with the results and had U.S. officials dismiss the study completely and buried it under the Watergate scandal. The findings were eventually published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute a year later.

No new reports of findings regarding THC and cancer surfaced after this study until a clinical trial that was conducted in the mid-1990s. This study was conducted by the U.S. National Toxicology program and worked off a $2 million federal budget.

The clinical trials gave very similar results: “that mice and rats administered high doses of THC over long periods experienced greater protection against malignant tumors than untreated controls.”

Even tests conducted throughout the world have found similar results to these. In 1998, researchers at Madrid’s Complutense University released a study that concluded that by administering THC to malignant brain tumor cells, the doctors were able to selectively induce apoptosis, or planned cell death. This allowed the researchers to systematically kill individual cancer cells without harming any of the nearby healthy cells.

And yet government officials and politicians have been adamant in keeping the law the same and condemning cannabis to be federally illegal, making this form of treatment an impossibility for a majority of U.S. cancer patients.

Hopefully this video will be enough visual and scientific proof that THC can be beneficial to be used by those suffering from cancer. At the very least, it may be able to save a few lives from suffering and bring new hope to those who are fighting cancer.

 Disregard Their Lies

Next time you hear the talking heads and profiteers demonize THC, remember the truth. When they say it is the gateway drug, understand that they have an ulterior motive. Remember that using the entire plant is much more efficient than the constituents alone (especially the synthetics). Remember that the Industrial Prison Complex and other criminal organizations (such as police forces who would rather arrest plant users than arrest rapists and murderers) have a vested interest in keeping the miracle medicine out of your hands. Remember the ability for these very criminals in blue to take your hard earned money (and even vibrators) in asset forfeiture.
